[R] Recursive solution with for()

i just ran into the following problem: I wanted to recursively solve equations of the type x_1[t]=x_1[t+1]+beta*x_2[t], and used a for-loop written

for(j in c(1:t-1, recursive=TRUE){

This didn't work, so i resolved to writing for(j in c(10,9,...,1){

which worked, but is not terribly efficient. So, what did I do wrong?

Thanks in advance,
